Movie Info

Based on the tragic "honor killing" of Hatun Aynur Sürücü in 2005, the film A Regular Woman portrays a glimpse of life for a free spirited young woman living with an ultra-conservative Turkish Muslim family in Berlin. After escaping a forced marriage in Turkey with her abusive cousin, Hatun provokes the ire of her family by embracing a westernized lifestyle. After enduring endless harassment, she finally leaves the family and attempts to survive alone with her child, with whom she had escaped Turkey while pregnant. The threats and harassment continue, with German authorities willing to do nothing unless a physical act of harm takes place. This soon materializes as the family decides to task Hatun's youngest brother with a deed that would end the family's "shame," and thrust the horrific practice of honor killings into the national spotlight.

This is a really terrific movie; one of the best of the year... It has a cumulative force that stays with you. It certainly stays with me.

This is tragic, illuminating, and very intimately told. It's very stylistically intriguing... It presents the story from the victim's perspective. It restores her voice, in a sense.

A film that feels exploitative, not enlightened.

Where When We Leave built to simple outage, this one concludes with a rush of complex, conflicting emotions.

June 21, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Much more accomplished and watchable than Hormann's previous film about a real-life crime, "3096 Days," "A Regular Woman" owes much to its fine cast and impeccable technical package.

This is a serious, sympathetic attempt to engage with the life of a woman who, while she rejected her family's strict reading of Islam, loved them too much to entirely break contact.
